Among general art museums, Cleveland is unique in being built largely by pr ofessionals, working with bequests of money more than of art. Blessed with two extraordinary long-term directors, William Milliken and Sherman Lee, wh o account for almost four-fifths of its 75 years of collecting, Cleveland h as objects of astounding quality on the walls, very few duds, and very litt le in storage. The 150 illustrations (a few have printed badly) show streng ths in every area, featuring such essential works as Poussin's Holy Family on the Steps or Church's Twilight in the Wilderness or Amorous Couple (Mith una) . Strong examples of Chinese and Japanese art and a broad selection of decorative arts, both medieval and later, are well shown.
